Resperate Review: Does It Work?
Resperate is a portable therapeutic device used for slow guided breathing exercises.
Resperate is approved by the FDA for reducing blood pressure in people with
hypertension. What is the main breathing problem for people with heart disease? Does it work?
see that heart patients breathe too much air (too fast and too deeply 24/7).
Therefore, it is logical that they have low oxygen levels in the heart and all
other vital organs. What does Resperate do in relation to breathing? The device generates audio tones, one sound for inhalation and
another, longer sound for exhalation. Thus, instead of the usual 18-20 breaths
per minute (common in moderate hypertension), the person breathes only about
10 breaths per minute.
Resperate clinical trials
Resperate has had 10 published trials that support the claim that
its regular use (15 min per day) can reduce
blood pressure by about 14/8 mm Hg points (for systolic/diastolic blood
pressure values) in 2 months.
It is known that
regularly measuring blood pressure also gradually reduces blood
pressure. For example, the average control treatment reduction in Resperate
studies in control groups was about 9/4 mm
Hg. Hence, Resperate produced an additional blood pressure reduction of 5/4 mm
Hg. Meanwhile, about 10% of people with very high blood pressure had a
decrease of up to 36/20 mm Hg, and this fact also requires explanation. How
does it work? Why do some people achieve normal blood pressure,
while other people do not get any positive effects?

reduces arterial CO2 levels, while CO2 is the most potent known vasodilator. As
a result, vasoconstriction causes tissue hypoxia in all vital organs (the heart
These physiological facts clearly demonstrate that arterial hypocapnia (CO2
deficiency) is a norm in hypertension and heart disease. As a result, the
arteries and arterioles are in a state of spasm.
When Resperate guided-breathing sessions are conducted, relaxation is
crucial for success. The device slightly encourages longer exhalations (sometimes
below the functional residual capacity), but inhalations are passive, and this
leads to very gradual accumulation of CO2 in the lungs and arterial blood.
This additional CO2 dilates blood vessels, according to the laws of physiology,
reduces heart rate and blood pressure. Most importantly, this
Resperate review suggests that breathing exercises
with Resperate are able to increase body-oxygen levels.
How to improve Resperate's effects
Resperate is an effective initial step in breathing retraining and its effects depend on
changes in automatic or unconscious breathing patterns. Therefore, its
efficiency can be dramatically improved if the person follows healthy lifestyle
changes that make breathing slower.
These ideas have been developed by over 150 Russian medical doctors who
successfully applied breathing retraining on thousands of people with heart
disease and hypertension. Furthermore, Russian MDs proved that when people
with hypertension have more than 25 s for the body-oxygen test 24/7, they have normal
blood pressure and do not require medication to control hypertension.
Among the key factors that help to
slow down automatic breathing patterns are: physical exercise with nose
breathing only, prevention of mouth breathing during sleep, prevention of
supine sleep positions, eating only when hungry, and many others. A short
summary of positive and negative lifestyle factors can be found on the web page
Hyperventilation treatment. A more
detailed description of healthy lifestyle factors is outlined in

blood pressure due to a larger blood pressure decrease in patients with
